Michelin Tweel Available as Factory Option on CASE Skid Steer Loaders

From WOC Show Floor to Nevada Job Site

This new Xtreme Commander IIIx is simultaneously trimming and pouring curb and gutter in Las Vegas, Nevada. This Commander IIIx is the 2018 World of Concrete show machine and was on display in the GOMACO booth from January 23 through 26. The Commander IIIx is equipped with rotary-sensor slew drives on each of the three tracks for extreme steering capabilities.

  • Xtreme Steering Capabilities‒ The Commander IIIx is equipped with rotary-sensor slew drives, on each of the three tracks for extreme steering of the tracks.

– The extreme steering capabilities, combined with the Commander IIIx’s sensored All-Track Steering and sensored All-Track Positioning, make it the ultimate, intelligent slip-form paver.

– The intelligent All-Track Positioning on the Commander IIIx includes a smart hydraulic cylinder on all three legs. The smart cylinders allow G+® to know the position of all three tracks and can make steering adjustments as needed.

  • Xtreme Intelligence‒ Smart cylinder side-shifting of the mold for repeatable mold offset.

– Intelligent offset is accomplished with smart hydraulic cylinders for telescoping the mold mounting system. This provides G+ the ability for repeatable mold off set. The trimmerhead and mold have independent vertical adjustments for raising and lowering.

  • Xtreme Hydraulic Package‒ Independent hydraulic travel circuits to each track allow G+ to control each individual track speed through a radius.
  • Xtreme Radius‒ Now the Commander III can pour a 24 inch (610 mm) radius.

– The Commander IIIx’s G+ control system easily interfaces with stringline or a 3D guidance system for curb and gutter and tight radius applications.

– The Commander IIIx now features the GOMACO three-sensor radius system for stringline. When paving with stringline, the lead steering wand is allowed to leave the stringline and reference is switched to sensor number two for traveling around the extreme radius.

– Individual track speed control provides smooth machine travel around a radius.

  • G+ Radius Software‒ Pick your radius and G+ calibrates and manages all aspects of traveling around the radius, including track angles and individual variable track speeds.

– New G+ Radius Software for the control system allows the operator to program the size of the radius into the controller. As the Commander IIIx approaches the radius, with the values already dialed in, the operator activates the radius program, and the curb and gutter machine slipforms around the radius. It’s now easy for any operator to pour a radius.

  • The operator’s platform is isolated to reduce vibration for a comfortable day of paving.
  • A pivoting operator’s console allows the operator to have hands-on control and a clear view no matter where they are on the platform.
  • Excellent fuel efficiency combined with an increased fuel capacity allows for an uninterrupted day of paving on the project.
  • An optimized cooling package with a hydraulic fan that is controlled by G+ adapts the cooling needs to job-site conditions for both a quiet and efficient operation.
  • The G+ wireless remote control is an available option for the CommanderIIIx. The G+ remote control allows an operator to work from the operator’s platform or have the ability to move around the machine with hands-on control at all times.
  • CommanderIIIx is also available with GOMACO Remote Diagnostics (GRD) for machine troubleshooting, diagnostic reviews, software updates, and more.
  • G+ ConnectTM for accessories and guidance systems.
  • An optional on-board camera is available to monitor designated areas of the slipforming process. The camera can be positioned anywhere around the paver and feeds live video to the G+ display on the operator’s console.
  • Designed for high-volume curb and gutter.

National Equipment Dealers, LLC Acquires Three Independent Equipment Dealers in Fastest Growing Regions in the USA

National Equipment Dealers, LLC Acquires Three Independent Equipment Dealers in Fastest Growing Regions in the USA

In a multi-faceted transaction that closed on Friday, January 5, National Equipment Dealers acquired Four Seasons Equipment, May Heavy Equipment, and Earthmovers Equipment, as well as some assets of International Iron.

This is a truly exceptional opportunity for NED to expand in what is recognized as the three fastest growing economic areas in the US: Texas (Houston and Dallas), the Carolinas (Raleigh, Lexington, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville/Spartanburg, Charleston) and Florida (Orlando).

Financing for the merger and ongoing operations was supplied by a syndication of four banks led by BOK Financial. The other participating banks are Fifth Third Bank, Bank of the West and First Tennessee Bank.

Mitch Nevins, CEO, and Kerry Vickar, Chairman, state that employees of each company are expected to continue their respective jobs in the same previous manner as no operational changes will be made upon bringing these businesses together. They believe collective success will be realized by all employees working together, sharing best business practices and equipment fleets, and benefitting from the synergies of a larger company footprint.

Collectively NED represents 10 major manufacturers across a three-state territory, each embracing the combined operations in NED. It is expected that there will be a significant growth in size, both in terms of the number of locations and employees, as well as by geographic diversification, that will provide substantially enhanced opportunities for them as well as NED.
